What bottle are you angriest about not having purchased when you had the chance?

I once saw an indie bottling of Clynelish at a travel retail (duty free at the time) that was just a little more than I had in my pocket so I decided that putting on my Visa was not a good plan. It makes me very sad to think about that bottle now.

Great question - nothing comes immediately to mind but regret not appreciating whiskey when people first introduced me in 2003/2004.

The second bottling way good but not as much as the first..... I still sigh at the tought I should have bought all there was....

Hell I would love to get a shot at buying more of the PC# series.... never even seen the 5-6-7 but they would make a superb addition to my 8-9-10 lol

Brora 25yr!  

This was when I was just getting into whisky, before I was educated enough to know what I was looking at.  The store had a bunch of them.  They were pricey (by comparison) so I skipped over them quickly.  At the time, I was educating myself profusely on all things whisky and soon did know the significance of Brora.  A few weeks later I had  a sudden memory flash that I'd seen all those Broras.  I ran back to the store in a mad panic with the intention of getting a schwack load of them... alas, too late ("nooooooo"!).  It's painful to think I could've gotten two whole cases for the price of a single bottle of new Brora now.  I eventually did fluke out and got my hands a bottle of the 25yr quite a few years later, but it cost more than I care to admit,  I could only get the one.

So regretting not bringing home a Tamdhu Batch Strength No.1 when I was in Scotland last year.

I think I'll have to give up on that one. If you're in Canada, you probably haven't seen it at your local stores either.
Oh yes, at the time I opted for Glenfarclas £511 instead. These are available everywhere in Alberta. Lol.

Glenfiddich Snow Phoenix or Macallan 18 before the age-statement bottles left Canada

I managed to get four of the Snow Phoenix but do regret leaving the other two behind.  Had to drive into Ontario to get them, so a four hour round trip.  

Also wish I'd bought the last bottles of Macallan 25 on the shelves though practically speaking I couldn't afford them.  At $999 plus tax they were out of reach but now seem quite the bargain with the price increase the the fall of the Canadian dollar.
